Woman ordered to pay N6 million for using juju magic on sex workers

08 March 2016, 06:33

Abuja - A Nigerian woman living in the United Kingdom has been ordered to hand over nearly N6 million for trafficking Nigerian nationals into the country to work as prostitutes.

The convict, Lizzy Idahosa, was originally sentenced to eight years imprisonment in 2014 after being found guilty of human trafficking, Naij has reported.

During the original trial, Idahosa was ordered to pay the court N14 million for trafficking women to work in brothels.

In addition, Idahosa was also found guilty of money laundering and inciting prostitution.

The victims, who's names were not disclosed, revealed that they were promised a better life in London but had been subjected to juju rituals in order to prevent them from being disobedient.

Idahosa has since been given 28 days to pay back the funds or face a nine month prison sentence.
